North Myrtle Beach says tents can stay

On second thought, the tents can stay on the shore at North Myrtle Beach.
Multiple media outlets report that North Myrtle Beach City Council voted Monday night to continue to allow tents and other beach equipment, with certain restrictions.
The council had tentatively voted in July to ban tents on the beach because of concerns the tents block lifeguards' views of the water and can block emergency vehicles.
But some people raised questions about banning the tents completely.
The new rules require the tents to be removed at night. The tents also must be placed behind the city's line of rental umbrellas or behind the high-tide mark.
